  • "Went for my birthday and had a wonderful time. Consistently great restaurant!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Everything was good. From the drinks - guacamole - to the steak. Waitress was attentive and pleasant. The only problem was I requested a table outside & when I got there they said the do not honor those requests on open table. It was a beautiful night and we specifically wanted to eat outside. I was told the wait would be over an hour - even though we had a reservation & there was an avaiable table outside. That was disappointing. However, that being said, Besito is still a very good Mexican restaurant."

  • "Was better the first time we went...smallest glass of wine EVER. And NOT a Mexican restaurant...a hybrid actually... partly Mexican/partly Spanish...Was ok...over priced and I don't know what all the is excitement is about...every time I have to fight for a spot, it is NEVER packed."

  • "My wife likes to go to Besito each year for her birthday. She loves the fresh guacamole made at the table and the food is always excellent. Very nice place in the summer to sit by the open doors near the street or in the back of the restaurant if you want more of the A/C. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Besito-Huntington to anyone who wants a great restaurant at a reasonable price."

We enjoyed the tableside guacamole (fantastic), for dinner we ordered the Budin de Mariscos, Carnitas, and a Tamale de Elote. The food was well-prepared, hot, and fresh. We plan on returning soon!"

  • "I was recommended to have a romantic dinner for our anniversary. I love Mexican food! Based on the reviews, I thought to check it out. We were quickly seated as we had booked a table. It was very busy and a little confusing when we walked in. The lovely hostess sat us in the back. Our waiter was awesome and so helpful with the menu. We ordered the guacamole; delicious and no need for salt! We the ordered the platanos maduros with our dishes. He ordered carne de res and I ordered the enchiladas mixtas.yum! Dessert was tres leches and we made room! Margarita de Tamarind all the way!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Bar was backed up, so drinks took a while - even my soda... why? Ordered the table side guacamole - double order - not made at our table... made in a corner and brought over. Isn't presentation part of the pricy order? $22 for that? Otherwise very good food, and friendly and attentive waitress. I will chalk this up to a busier than expected Monday night. Food was great, so I will be back."

  • "I made the reservation thru open table and unfortunately made it for two when we were three. The place was packed but they seated us within 15 minutes. They were fantastic about it and the meal was delish"

  • "Besito is known to have terrible service, I don't ever recall having good service. The food is tremendous, but you will wait 15-20 before you even order and to reorder drinks is a painful operation. I have ate here 20+ times, and will continue to despite the lack of service because the food is that good."

  • "Our group of three enjoyed our wonderful dinner at Besito. The guacamole, fresh and made table side, was outstanding and the chips were fresh and warm. I'm a vegetarian and really enjoyed my "vegetales" dinner - fresh and plenty to eat. The only negative is that it is very noisy and hard to have a conversation, even on a Monday evening."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The salad with grilled salmon was exceptional. I don't know what is in the dressing but it was delicious with lettuce and corn and avocado. As always, the table-made guacamole is fantastic. This time I tried the ginger jalapeno margarita, and am a complete convert. The last sip, with the shredded jalapeno, was the perfect to coda to a great meal. WE sat one table in from the sidewalk so had good light and good people-watching."

  • "Great food and great atmosphere. Very attentive staff and would definitely return. My son loved the food they accommodated him he can be such a picky eater."

  • "Made a reservation for a friends birthday celebration. Sat with Collen, had the table-side made guacamole, the feature cerviche and the margaritas and pitcher of white sangria. Collen was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. White sangria was some of the best we've had! Definitely will be back."

  • "My family (myself, my wife and two children) ate dinner at Besito this past Fri. night. Our dinner experience was disappointing. We were seated on the raised dining level next to the kitchen which was crowded. The waiter was nowhere to be found throughout dinner. He never came by once to ask if we needed anything or to ask how our food was. My wife had to get up to find someone to ask for more chips and I had to get up and look for the waiter to get my check. The food my wife and children ordered was good. My shortribs were extremely overcooked and not good. When the he bus"boy" (man) finally came after dinner he made no attempt whatsover to pick up our dishes-he simply put his arm out. Overall, not a pleasurable experience."

  • "over experience with this over rated restaurant was pathetic.We went out with our friends for dinner and were very disappointed with food quality. Drinks were ok not so great, service was garbage our server was in mad rush all the time as far as food is concern don't even bother. We had some quesadilla with pork it tasted like left over food in kitchen also we had empanadas ( yuckyyy dont want eve recall). Never in my life will go back to this restaurant. Attitude of all servers were rough and unprofessional. i will give this restaurant over all 1 star that also because of the guacamole."

  • "Such a great place. I've been here before and went again this time (2 yrs later) and the food and ambience was amazing. Just as I expected it to be. The waitress was great and super friendly. Totallllly recommend it to anyone looking for great Cuban food. Plus the fresh guacamole was phenomenal. Price for two people with 1 drink each and an appetizer to share was $98.00"

  • "I've always tried to get into this place but every time I went the wait was at least an hour. Now I see why! The food was flavorful and cooked to perfection. My mom especially loved it. Its a bit pricey but as she put it, "I'd rather spend a little more on a good meal then save some money and not be satisfied." I highly recommend Besito."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Besito has a great selection of rather different choices of fare for"Mexican" type food. Instead of the usual tacos and buritos, they have selections and combos that are very mouth watering and sensual to the taste buds."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Besito used to be great, phenomenal even, but our past two trips have been mediocre, at best. Portion sizes are way too small now (especially for the price), and the quality of the ingredients has gone way down. Our waitress disappeared for 20 minutes during our meal so we had no one to complain to. When we told the busboy about our food issue (couldn't eat most of the "Shrimp and Steak" special because half the meat was fat or tendon), it went in one ear and out the other. The bright note of our meal was the Margarita - still good. However, we were missing half our Sangria (half a glass was provided). Besito is a little too high on their britches now and need to come back down to reality. Overall, Besito is really a let down lately."

  • "My family dined at Besito for Father's Day and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was fantastic, from the made to order guacamole (which both of my kids raved about) to the tamale appetizer and enchilada main course. The place has a great atmosphere and the tequila and specialty drink list are extensive to say the least. Only downside was the service - I beleive we didn't get the full Besito experience because of our server. In fact, my waitress didn't even bother to tell me the night's specials and seemed utterly disinterested in my table other than the mandatory check to make sure my food was OK. Regardless, the food was worth it and I'll hope for a better server next time."

  • "Things at Besito were great as usual - the food, the service, the seating; the only problem is the feeling of being rushed from the time we sat down until the time we left."

  • "My friends an I went out for dinner to catch up on a Saturday night I am a chef and one friend is a doctor we very rarely have off on Saturdays. We all went out we expected it to be noise after all it was Saturday but the service was down right awful. The waiter was at almost all his other tables around us but when it came to checking in on us he never stopped by. It was like he took our orders and then dropped our check. We all had appetizers for our dinner I would hate to think we had bad service because we weren't spending money!!! I had an empty water glass 3 times while eating and my other friends didn't get offered a refill of there alcoholic drinks until after their meal was done. The food was great as always. The service horrible. "
